It’s been a long while since I’ve posted photos of my collection. With the long weekend, I finally decided to go through all the boxes and lay them out on my kitchen table. Thanks go to SpottedBanana for helping me arrange them all.
I started throwing about two years ago and have been anodizing for a year and a half. This is the majority of the collection except for ~60 Tom Kuhns and another ~30 yoyos that are either raw or waiting to be stripped for ano. Pretty much everything in the collection is mint. I usually sell off or trade away anything that’s not completely mint (except for the OG Peaks and other very rare stuff.) I don’t have nearly enough time to throw all of these guys, but they bring me quite a bit of joy just sitting in the collection.
I keep them in a combination of red Sears plastic divider boxes (which are perfect for storing yoyos btw.) I usually end up rotating through the Sears boxes and messing around with each box for a week, after which the box gets switched out for a different one. I store all of the original boxes in 10+ shoe boxes organized by brand and region.
Whole table shot. I actually don’t know what the total count is, but I suspect it’s somewhere around 300 total.
Here’s the middle of the group. A few nice General Yos in the lower left. I think the OG torrent is off the frame. Also three sovereigns, Ti5, couple Oxy Tis, PYBIT and a nice collection of ILYYs in the upper center.
Zoom in on some Peaks. Couple of OGs, Skittles, Raspberry Drip, Josh Hendrickson ‘Levi Blasted’, Spectral Cloak, Hot Pink, Jensen’s old Laker’s Peak, Clareview, Berenguel, Lava, 28 Stories 1st and 2nd, etc. I think I am up to 21 Peaks. Yes, it’s a sickness.
Spyy and VsNYYCs. Three TiWalkers, couple huts, seven Skywalkers, SADR, 5 RSLs (I love RSLs!), etc.
Non-Peak CLYWs (Yum. Pink first run Avalanche). Couple of GeneralYo Magnums in the back.
Werrd and B!sts. I especially love the Tondos and Bist8. Some FHZs on the right side.
Now that I’m typing this I realize I forgot some… YYF Catch 22, Duncan MG, another 10 unopened limited FHZs. I forgot to take those guys off the shelf.
… now to put them all back in their cases!
